72m Stella Maris: The Must-See Superyacht of MYBA 2022

By Heather Collier

Launched in 2013, Stella Maris is a spectacular 72-metre yacht representing a definitive step forward for VSY.

She is currently available for charter with World Yacht Group and is open for viewings at the 2022 MYBA Charter Show. 

Entrusted to the expertise of architect Espen Øino in cooperation with Laurent Giles Naval Architects, Stella Maris blends traditional elements of design and layout with new variations on a theme, such as the staggered internal decks, the heights of the saloons and the innovative form of the bow. The resulting layout ensures a volume, more usually seen in yachts of greater dimensions, of 2,114 GRT.

Also, it was possible to share the various functions on board among the decks thus rendering greater flexibility for any further different layout requirements, flexibility which constitutes one of the corner stones of VSY building philosophy, with the aim of satisfying the widest possible requirements of the owner.

Besides there being one deck exclusively for the guests, there is also a separate Owner’s deck and saloons with finished heights of 270 cm and the pleasure of enjoying green landscapes at sea, an exclusive novelty with real house-plants crossing the decks.

Concepts of the internal and external spaces are interpreted in a very unconventional way. In the main and upper saloons and the Owner’s cabin, there are spectacular walls entirely of glass, thus allowing the eye to see and enjoy beyond what would normally be a rigid barrier.

The stunning interior design by Studio Reverberi is based on simple lines but refined, embellished with natural stones, fabrics and veneers that spell freshness, lightness and luminosity where the external and internal ambiences merge.

Traditional elements combined with sheer luxury, each space is defined by neutral modern tones, high-quality fabrics, rare woods, and natural stones, presenting the ultimate peaceful haven. Throughout her design process, she remained a predominantly eco-friendly build, with many green, eco-conscious features implemented ahead of her time.

She also boasts a fully operational certified helipad concieved for evening use with atmospheric lighting reminiscent of the Meditteranean sea, something unique to a yacht of her size, which can be transformed into a vast entertaining area for up to 100 guests.

After plenty of excitement onboard, guests can recover and unwind in the vessel's exclusive massage and health spa and sauna. Home to a large beach club and an incredibly generous amount of water toys, including two tenders, seabobs, water skis and diving equipment, she is the ultimate charter yacht.

Stella Maris is yet another example of VSY’s ability to interpret the most exclusive ideas of an Owner, creating a leisure craft where living at sea is an unimaginable privilege and pleasure.

Viewings at the 2022 MYBA Yacht Show are officially open. You won't want to miss her.
